This is the base module for the implementation of the Factur-X and ZUGFeRD standards. The standard Factur-X 1.0 is the same as ZUGFeRD 2.0 (the name Factur-X is always used in France, whereas in Germany many people still use the name ZUGFeRD). It is a standard based on CII (Cross-Industry Invoice) for electronic invoicing. The great idea of the Factur-X/ZUGFeRD standard is to embed an XML file inside the PDF invoice to carry structured information about the invoice.

Table of contents


To configure this module, you need to:

  • go to the menu Sales > Configuration > Products > Units of Measures and check the UNECE Code for the units of measures.
  • go to the menu Invoicing > Configuration > Accounting > Taxes and, for each tax, set a UNECE Type Code and a UNECE Category Code.
  • go to the menu Invoicing > Configuration > Management > Payment Methods and assign a UNECE Code to the payment methods that are selected in the payment modes.

To avoid the manual configuration of taxes, look for a module l10n_XX_account_tax_unece in the OCA project of your localization; if such a module exists (it exists at least for the Netherlands and France), install it and it will auto-configure the taxes created by your localization.


This module doesn't do anything by itself, but it is used by 2 other modules:

  • account_invoice_facturx that generate Factur-X 1.0 (i.e. ZUGFeRD 2.0) customer invoices/refunds,
  • account_invoice_import_facturx that imports ZUGFeRD 1.0 and Factur-X 1.0 (i.e. ZUGFeRD 2.0) supplier invoices/refunds.
